About Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium

Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium consists of a 1.5-million-gallon Aquarium Adventure showcasing 35,000 live fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds, as well as immersive Wildlife Galleries that bring visitors eye-to-eye with the greatest collection of record-setting game animals ever assembled. Created by noted conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder/CEO Johnny Morris, the 350,000 square-foot experience celebrates those who hunt, fish, and act as stewards of the land and water. Located next to Bass Pro Shops National Headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, the campus is a centerpiece of America’s Conservation Capital in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. Wonders of Wildlife has been voted “Best New Attraction in America” and “America’s Best Aquarium” by the readers of USA TODAY. Johnny Morris’ personal passion for conservation has positioned Wonders of Wildlife with an opportunity like no other attraction to have a positive national impact on wildlife and conservation. By partnering with leading conservation organizations, Johnny Morris has established one of the most valuable and respected conservation and education centers in the world based in the heartland of America.
